The poems in "pihta “kwa wihta"reveal strong links to land, to family, and to the wisdom of elders. The author exposes the struggles that many Aboriginal people encounter while getting an education, dealing with family issues and abuse, learning to respect themselves and demanding respect from others, finding their place in the world, and recovering their rich history and culture. This book illustrates the resilience and strength of the Aboriginal people and the determination that they bring to their local communities across Canada.
